Music, Wigs and Hula Hoops…

18 07 2014

Meet my new friend Nikki Hunt.

We had the opportunity to see Nikki Hunt and her band Nikki Hunt Band perform live last weekend. We were out with a small crew of friends for dinner and drinks at Rick’s Cafe in Naples.

During the summer they have live acts and they are always different.

Well this weekend Nikki Hunt and her band were on the schedule.

All I will tell your here is that we had a lot of fun! The way Nikki mixes Music, wigs and hula hoops is quite entertaining. I would suggest if you have the opportunity to catch her show, you should.

To learn more about Nikki, her band, music and hula hoops check out her on line presents and blog. You can find the links here: http://nikkihunt.com/

Hope you like the video Nikki. I shot a few clips of your performance and pulled this together.

On A River

18 07 2014

We had the opportunity to spend a day on a river in a boat with friends. It was so relaxing. The sky and clouds looked so nice.

It all started with dinner, friends and cherrystones on the grill. Have you every had cherrystones on the grill? So good!

The next morning we went to the boat. Even thought it’s a fast boat we just cursed down the lazy river taking in all of the sights. In the morning we saw an owl in the tree. It looked like a white owl but were not certain. A second owl came slightly into view hidden behind a branch and some levees.

Got to love New England.  Took a few photographs along the way. I hope you enjoy them.

Sand and Water – National Sand Sculpting Festival with Bruce Garber

21 07 2013

National Sand Sculpting Festival
Revere Beach, July 19 – 21, 2013

Revere Beach is located six miles north of downtown Boston.

In 2004, the first New England Sand Sculpting Festival was held. The annual contest soon offered cash prizes, which attracted famous sculptors from all over the world. This year’s tournament is taking place from Friday July 19th to Sunday July 21st 2013, near the bandstand on Revere Beach Boulevard.

The artists adhere to strict rules during the contest. Each sculptor is given 10 tons of sand and are assigned an 18′ x 18′ square exhibit area. Work by the artists is limited to 24 hours in total length, which is spread out over several days. Forms for molding components are allowed and must be removed prior to the artworks being rated by the judges. The sand sculptures are evaluated using four categories: (1) degree of difficulty, (2) originality and creativity, (3) quality of sculpting, and (4) overall visual impact. Thousands of dollars in prize money are offered each year, which garners some of the best artists in the nation to the festival. The New England Sand Sculpting event draws a lot of people to Revere Beach, and has increased the appeal of visiting this local attraction.

sub-notes:
The live streamed video broadcast was not the best video quality do to signal strength and bandwidth from this location however, it’s a great example of the work we’re doing to “walk the walk for those who can’t” via http://virtualphotowalks.org . We take people with disabilities to different locations around the world with the help from our generous photographer friends and enabled smartphones. Today it was my pleasure to take a few friends to the beach to see these wonderful sand sculptures.

Scott Moroney and Bruce Garber took Virtual Photo Walks to see the cavemen of trick bike riding hangout with old friends from some of the original crew that started this sport before it became what is known today as the X Games.
